The range of Segway robots presented in Chicago includes Segway ServeBot S1 and an outdoor delivery robot based on the Segway Robotic Mobility Platform (RMP).
The first is a service robot designed for indoor meal delivery. In view of rising costs and labor shortages, people are generating a lot of interest among restaurants for indoor service robots – with features such as serving food and drinks, meeting and greeting, collecting plates, browsing the entire store, while autonomously navigating through restaurant environment.
Another trend, the covid-19 pandemic has led to an increase in global demand for contactless food delivery services, and the ServeBot S1 provides an innovative solution to ensure a safe and healthy dining experience. This special event accelerated market adoption of this new technology.
During the show, restaurant owners asked about the possibilities of letting diners sit at their tables and order food or pay the bill via the ServeBot S1, Segway will continue to explore with service partners to improve integration feasibility.
Segway RMP (Robotics Mobility Platform), an integrated robotics platform that can be customized by third-party developers, was also unveiled at the show. It can be reprogrammed or customized for specific purposes and help achieve smart mobility.
Additionally, Segway Robotics sees a future for outdoor delivery. Last year, the company empowered a number of US delivery robot entrepreneurs, including Coco Delivery, enabling micro-mobility robots to accomplish food or grocery delivery on the sidewalk/at the door in urban communities.
Accelerated by the e-mobility movement and the covid-19 pandemic, the delivery robot industry is experiencing unprecedented growth. Recently, a growing list of companies have partnered with Segway in the indoor and outdoor delivery space, including Intel and NVIDIA. Segway Robotics is now determined to become the go-to manufacturer in the burgeoning industry.
